We couldn’t be more excited to REOPEN on June 5th! It’s been a long, tough road for all of us to be sheltered in place since March 14th! We’ve made the below safety modifications as we reopen.

  • Ok, so yes, we have always been by appointment, but we’re taking that to the next level with locked doors, to ensure you are the only family in the studio! 
  • Your photographer will be the ONLY person in the studio with you and will be wearing a mask.


  • Ok, so we pride ourselves on giving you a full-service experience & helping you through the ordering process. We still will, we’ll  just do it remotely!
  • You will receive an online ‘album’ to view and we’ll call you to walk you through everything! This will limit in-person time while maintaining social distancing standards. 


  • To date, each team member has been self isolated since March 14th. 
  • We will take our temperature each morning to ensure we’re healthy, and ask that you do the same (we’ll actually send you a text to confirm you and your family do not have a fever).

  • We will use blue UV light & sanitizing cleaner before EVERY session including furniture, door knobs etc 
  • We have removed all items in the lobby including snacks, drinks, coffee, & toys. Super bummer for littles ones, we know!

Can’t wait to see you back in studio (or for one of our FIRST EVER Outdoor Mini sessions this summer)!
